Ecumenical links in the village
The formation of Arnside Churches Together has helped to foster much stronger ecumenical links. Joint services are held on special Sundays such as Remembrance Sunday and Mothering Sunday and Pentecost. During the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, services are held in each of the three churches in the village and the Women's World Day of Prayer  is celebrated each year in each church on a rota basis. In recent years, the Anglican Church has joined us for our Annual Covenant Service.

Joint Lent Groups have been held and on Good Friday, all the churches will join together for a Procession of Witness in the village, with short services at each of the churches based on the Stations of the Cross. On Easter Morning there is a joint Sunrise Service on Arnside Knott. There have also been joint study courses on topics such as different faiths and a study of  the Ten Commandments using material by the evangelist J John.
